The Battle for the Bible, Part 1: Drawing the Lines of Combat
by Victor Kubik
(Posted Posted January 29, 2015)

Here’s a fact we need to consider. Many in our time foolishly reject the most ancient and voluminously preserved manuscripts in human history: the Bible. Given this tragic frame of mind, it should not be surprising that the very Word of God should come under withering attack from time to time. The Bible writers themselves warn of humanity’s foolhardiness when it comes to God’s revealed knowledge. But when these attacks happen, they still can be temporarily jarring in their magnitude.

This past week U.S. President Obama gave the annual State of the Union speech. Decades ago, this speech was intended to be the President talking to the members of Congress concerning the state of the nation. With the advent of television, the State of the Union address began to be used to promote the accomplishments of the current president. In recent years in America this State of the Union address has become a footnote in the news cycle, only to be reviewed in passing the next day.

Recently I watched an old movie with Shirley Temple in it called The Little Princess . Temple was 11 when she starred in that movie. She played Sara Crew, a little girl who was left by her father in an exclusive seminary for girls, due to her father having to go to Africa with the army.

Film Review: Patterns of Evidence: Exodus
by Darris McNeely
(Posted Posted January 20, 2015)

Last night I viewed Patterns of Evidence: Exodus.  It's a well done film that goes carefully through the Biblical account and shows the archaeological evidence for the Exodus. Interviews show archaeological and Biblical experts on all sides of the issue concerning this critical historical and spiritual event, as told in the book of Exodus. I think the evidence presented by filmmaker Tim Mahoney is fair and leaves you the viewer to decide what you believe.

The World Is Not What It Is
by Darris McNeely
(Posted Posted January 14, 2015)

I have been writing a series of articles on the parables Jesus spoke in his ministry. Today I just finished an article on the parable of the sower and the seed to appear in an upcoming issue of The Good News . I was struck by a passage in Matthew 13 where Jesus tells the disciples why He spoke in parables. The reason is rooted in a little understood truth about reality. The world we see is not the world that is.

During a murderous attack at the offices of  Charlie Hebdo , a French publication that specializes in satire, seven staff members were killed along with others in the building and police officers. Specifically targeted were political cartoonists who had created satirical cartoons of, among others, the founder of Islam, Mohammed. Four more were killed at a grocery store in the Jewish Quarter of Paris, targeted because of their Jewish ancestry and beliefs.

So Many Questions
by Darris McNeely
(Posted Posted January 9, 2015)

In America last weekend, a small plane went down in rural Kentucky, leaving four members of a family dead. Out of the wreckage came one lone survivor: the 7 year old daughter and the one member of the family who survived. The little girl was able to walk seven miles, knock on the door of a house and tell her story to the owner. Incredibly she also led rescue workers to the wreckage. She had only minor cuts and bruises and was later released from a hospital. It is an incredible story.
